Re: Culture Shock

Sorry, but IMHO you might as well use cardboard counters, or better yet, grains of rice (long grain of course, short grain would only be suitable for 2mm) if you don't need detail, just something the right size. At 1/300 scale, I estimate a human arm (up to 15cm) is only c. 0.5mm thick, so indisting...

Re: Journal 95 and Editors Role

Thanks for taking on the role and doing so well under difficult circumstances. Sorry to hear you can't continue, but understand it must take up a lot of your time as well as being quite frustrating at times.

Thanks again,

Andy

Re: Dead horses?

Most Airfix cavalry sets used to have a dead horse amongst the live ones. I seem to remember both the Napoleonic British Hussars and French Cuirassiers had dead horses, and the US Cavalry set. Spare horses in walking or standing poses could also be used on their sides assuming they've been dead for ...

Re: British additions

Very nice work. I had a lot of tidying up to do to get my Britannia Morris Radio Van in a position to paint it. Yours looks very neat in comparison.

Re: Any other Modern gamers ?

I think dicing for successful orders is quite an elegant technique for deciding if your subordinates follow your orders, do their own thing or cower in the bottom of their trench. It's all about deciding on the chance of your subordinates doing what you ask, converting that into a score to succeed a...

Both great films and great actors. Battle of the River Platte with Anthony Finch was another good one.

Cheers Andy
Quayle?
Actually was thinking of Peter Finch - played Langsdorff. Quayle was also good as Ajax captain.

Re: New film: Hurricane

Britain certainly couldn't have contributed troops before the Soviet invasion in mid-September. There were barely any BEF infantry in France other than advance parties and the 1st Armoured Div was still in the U.K. Not for any political reason, simply the time it took to mobilise an army for oversea...
